1 JOHN 3:17 is a weekly outreach ministry that blossomed from a mission project called Playground for Jesus. The Playground for Jesus is a recreational area built to honor God, and to provide a safe place for children to play. Through one simple email titled “What could you do with $10?”, God provided over $65,000.00 for the project. I have seen God at work in tremendous ways during this entire process. It started by building a “Playground for Jesus” in a low income area of our community. After building the playground I noticed a young boy playing without a coat on. I was convicted by this boy not having a coat. I was reading my Bible that night, and came across 1 JOHN 3:17. This Verse says, “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has not pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?” I decided the needing people in our community needed a voice. I knew according to this verse people would feel pity on the needy, and provide for legitimate needs. God has opened so many doors it is amazing. I started emailing people every Friday a need in our community. Each and every need was being met on a weekly basis. Then the radio station 1010 AM WMOX called and wanted me to be a part of a weekly radio segment. This radio segment started in January of 2010. Every week I present a need on the radio. I wonder each week if this is the week we will not met the need. However, God has come through on a weekly basis. Every single need that has been presented has been met.
Monday mornings at 7:15 we have a weekly segment on radio station 1010 AM WMOX called the 1 John 3:17 segment. We will highlight the TODAY’S NEED during the segment and have call ins for about 30 minutes where we try to get the money pledged. Please listen and call in (601-693-1010) or (601-693-1891) to help things get started off with a bang!! This is a great chance to help people in need in our community.
Please remember about the needs we present
**All donations are tax deductible**
For your information- Any need presented will be after an individual has been checked out through the Wesley House Clearing Procedure. Each individual must bring proof of I.D., pay stubs, tax records, social security for each member of the household, any child over 18 must provide income information, receiving any subsidy (food stamps, housing allowance, etc.), and proof of all outgoing bills. There is an extensive application that proves who the people are and the situation they face. Phone calls are placed to verify employment and information provided.
I know everybody has limited incomes, but many people are willing to help if they know who and what their money is going to. I simply cannot afford to do it all, and neither can you. I have a hard time going to sleep at night knowing somebody in this world who is trying their best needs a little help. The money you give will go in full to the individual if you decide to help. God is so good, and thank you for being somebody God can use. Please pray for each story and see if God gives you the means to help. If God puts it on your heart, please do not use the excuse somebody else will take care of it because it might go undone.
The mailing address for 1 John 3:17 is PO BOX 664, Marion, MS 39342. Make checks out to the Wesley House and earmark them for 1 John 3:17.
Tad Campbell To Challenge Terry Burton – I was just told by Rep. Tad Campbell that he has decided to make a Senate bid against Sen. Terry Burton for Senate District 31. Burton has taken a high-profile in the redistricting wars, and has irritated a number of conservatives first with his desire to collapse a Republican district in favor of a majority-Democrat district along with his support of the House Democrats restricting plan.
Meridian Asperger’s Connection (MAC) is a group of people in Meridian, Mississippi and Lauderdale County. The group was created to provide a local network of people helping people with Asperger’s Syndrome.
Our mission is to connect, guide and unite those with Asperger’s and their families on a local level. “Our goal is to short-cut the uphill battle individuals and families undertake when faced with Asperger’s in the East-Central area of Mississippi.”
Asperger’s Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical use of language are frequently reported. If you have Asperger’s, you are brilliant!
